Consumer: 1; Evil Corporation Preying on Obese People: 0

20 Apr

Apparently there are fraudulent websites that make false weight loss claims, use fake customer testimonials, use fake endorsements, inappropriately use the logos of major media outlets such as ABC, CNN, Fox News, and Consumer Reports,  all in a scam to prompt people to buy their amazing-lose-25-pounds-in-a-week acai berry weight loss products.

Wait just a minute while I put my surprised face on.

The good news is that the Federal Trade Commission has asked federal courts to freeze the assets of said evil corporations and is also asking for customer refunds.

Score 1 for the good guys!
